Wheaton Police Officers

City Welcomes New Officers

Library Closed on Friday

The Wheaton Public Library will be closed on Friday, Jan. 11, for a staff in-service day. Residents can use the outdoor drop-off slots to return materials.

Changes to Electronic Recycling at Drop-off

Starting with this Saturday’s electronic recycling drop-off event, the types of items being accepted at the monthly electronic recycling drop-off will change due to state legislation involving electronics companies. The following items will not be accepted at the monthly events: large and small appliances; household batteries; electronics from businesses; and hazardous or chemical waste. The event takes place from 9 a.m. to noon on the second Saturday of each month at the Public Works Storage Yard, 820 W Liberty Drive. For more information and to see curbside options, please visit www.wheaton.il.us/electronics.

Sip, stroll and shop your way through downtown with the Winter Wine Walk. This event, organized by the Downtown Wheaton Association, will be from 4-7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19. Featuring wine tastings at 24 downtown restaurants, shops and businesses, it’s a unique way to experience some of the many things downtown Wheaton has to offer. This event is for ages 21 and older.

Christmas Tree Recycling

If you are served by the City's garbage/recycling hauler, this is the final week for free Christmas tree recycling on your garbage day. If you miss the pickup and still want to recycle your tree, you can place it at the curb with one garbage/yard waste sticker attached. Please remember to remove all decorations, and do not place your tree in a bag.

Summer Job Opportunity

The City of Wheaton is accepting applications for its Seasonal Summer Laborer Program at Public Works. This paid opportunity offers full-time hours throughout the summer months and provides hands-on experience in various divisions such as Forestry, Streets, Water and Sewer.

This is an excellent way to stay busy this summer, make some extra cash and get a behind-the-scenes look at the department that keeps the City running in many ways. Early applications are encouraged and can be found at www.wheaton.il.us/jobs.
